Nairobi clothing shop begins selling Sh2,000 chastity belts
A men’s clothing shop in Nairobi has begun selling chastity belts that are secured with an iron padlock.
The belts have been designed to help men to protect themselves from being sexually harassed by their wives and are being sold for Sh 2, 000.
The shop is at Gilfillan house, Kenyatta avenue.
The concept for the belts arose after a Nyeri woman was charged in court for chopping off her husband’s private part because of a quarrel.
A men’s lobby group, Maendeleo ya Wanaume, wants women who chop off man’s genitals to be sentenced to life imprisonment or to the death penalty.
The shop has displayed a mannequin wearing the chastity belt on its window.
